Islamabad airport world’s worst

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan’s Islamabad Benazir Bhutto International Airport is the world’s worst airport, according to Sleeping at Airports, a website that gives tips for sleeping at airports, reported Fox News on Tuesday.  The site's annual ranking, based on tourist surveys that asked about comfort and crowds at terminals, Wi-Fi, food options and overall cleanliness, gave it low marks for its large crowds and lackluster security. New York’s LaGuardia, ranked at number 10, was the only US airport to make the list.
It was criticised for its “poor restaurant selection, lackluster cleanliness, counterintuitive layout and the notoriously unhelpful staff.” Vice President Joe Biden once called LGA a “third world country.” Sleeping in airports also ranked the worst airports in North America. LAX came in as the second most hated airport in America after LGA. In fact, all three major New York City metro area airports—Newark, JFK and LaGuardia--got bad marks. And Las Vegas’ McCarran, at number 9, is generally despised for the constant chiming from slot machines.
Though we’ve seen many airports stepping up amenities with futuristic sleeping pods, not every city has gotten the memo when it comes to amping up the whole traveler experience.
World’s worst airports are 1. Islamabad Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Pakistan; 2. Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport, Saudi Arabia; 3. Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport, Nepal; 4. Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Philippines; 5. Tashkent International Airport, Uzbekistan; 6. Paris Beauvais-Tille International Airport, France 7. Frankfurt Hahn International Airport, Germany; 8. Bergamo Orio al Serio International Airport, Italy; 9. Berlin Tegel International Airport, Germany and 10. New York City LaGuardia International Airport, USA.
